MISHAWAKA, Ind. — REAL News Michiana has been provided an email describing pay cuts coming to nurses in the Saint Joseph Health System. The email lays out the reason for the pay cuts is a shift from the “pandemic to endemic stage of COVID.” And, it comes as the nation is feeling record high inflation along with skyrocketing gas and food prices.
“The previous two years have created challenges and opportunities for our entire Saint Joseph Health System family to grow and to learn what being ‘Called to Care’ means to each of us.” The email starts. “One challenge that required creative measures for SJHS was to address staffing, this required SJHS to create the Targeted RN/ST Compensation Plan. As time has progressed, the current financial circumstance require us to once again adjust as we work to sustain our ministry for the future. As we transition from pandemic to endemic stage of COVID, we need to make adjustments in order to maintain the health system’s financial sustainability… As you make adjustments in your own lives, we hold you close in constant prayer.”
The pay cut will hit Saint Joseph Health System nurses next month.
REAL News Michiana reached out to the SJHS media team for comment on the cuts. As of publication, we have not received a response.
